Last Sunday night, if you were lucky enough to hear the post-Super Bowl interview with Seattle’s quarterback Russell Wilson, then you heard some news you can use!
He said, “We believed we would get here. At the beginning of the season I told our guys, ‘Hey, why not us?’ ”
Because those were the words of Wilson's late father.
“He used to always tell me ‘Russ, why not you?’ And what that meant was believe in yourself.”
That’s a big reason why Wilson went into football, even though the odds were stacked against him — at 5’ 11” he’s more than 3 inches shorter than the average NFL quarterback.
So, what about you?
What's your dream?
A published book?
A gallery show?
A Newbery or Caldecott medal?
Well, why not you?
PROMPT: What if you said “Why not me?” every time your head hit the wall of doubt?
WHY. NOT. YOU.
